RCMP say the backpacks taken from two youth fishing at Comox Wharf have been returned to their owners.
The alleged theft happened on June 14 when surveillance footage showed a man and a woman walking away with the two black backpacks, Comox Valley RCMP said in a news release Tuesday.
But in an update Wednesday, police say the backpacks have been returned.
“Shortly after the request, one of the suspects came forward, indicated it was a miscommunication, and returned the backpacks to the Comox Valley RCMP detachment,” said Mounties.
“The owners have confirmed that all the belongings were inside and nothing was missing.”
